SOFT SUGAR COOKIES RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • FROSTING:
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons hot water
  • Food coloring, optional

    DIRECTIONS

    Preheat oven to 350°. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy; beat in extracts and eggs, one at a time. In another bowl, whisk together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt and nutmeg; gradually beat into creamed mixture.
    Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 3 in. apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets; flatten slightly with bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Bake until edges begin to brown, 8-10 minutes. Remove from pan to wire racks; cool completely.
    For frosting, beat butter, confectioners’ sugar, extract and enough water to reach desired consistency. If desired, tint with food coloring. Spread over cookies. Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen.
